An exceptional large modern country house under construction in an unspoilt location amidst rolling Ayrshire countryside.

Totally private and secluded, Bellisle is within easy reach of excellent road and rail links. Glasgow City Centre is some 24 miles to the north, easily reached via the M77 in about 30 minutes travelling time. Ayr, about 16 miles is also easily accessible. There are excellent amenities available in Ayr and Kilmarnock including cinemas, theatres, hospitals, an excellent range of shops and a variety of sporting facilities. There are various private schools within a short distance including Wellington in Ayr and Belmont House in Newton Mearns. Airports at Prestwick and Glasgow are 10 miles and 30 miles respectively with a comprehensive timetable of flights. The nearest railway station is in Kilmarnock with regular connections to Ayr, Glasgow and beyond.

Ayrshire is renowned for its many golf courses including the world famous facilities at Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry, all located within a 30 minute drive. There are exceptional yachting facilities at the Marinas in Troon, Largs and Inverkip whilst the County offers many opportunities for fishing, shooting and a host of other outdoor pursuits. Glasgow offers an exceptional range of restaurants, clubs and galleries.

Originally a traditional stone Ayrshire Farmhouse with adjoining stone outbuildings, Bellisle is being transformed with great flair and imagination into an extraordinary and substantial country house in an unspoilt but very accessible rural situation.

The concept has been to create a wonderful family home with all modern conveniences while retaining much of the Victorian character of the original stone farm steading. To enhance these fine buildings, a glazed walkway looks onto the enclosed courtyard garden. The principal reception rooms and the 38ft long kitchen/dining/living room have southerly and westerly aspects making the most of panoramic views over open farmland. This is the main living area within the house and extensive glazing on all sides gives it an open light and airy feel.

The layout of the house is shown on the attached floor plan, the entire house will have an internal floor area of about 688 sq metres (7407 square feet).

Five bedrooms have en suite facilities with three having the added benefit of dressing rooms.

The east wing of the House has a home office/gym complete with shower, sauna, steam room and changing facilities.

The house is being built to the highest specification. Features include high quality contemporary sanitaryware, underfloor heating, CAT 6 cabling and a Bose sound system, fibre optic lighting and ISDN connections. Much use of oak is made throughout the house with floors of granite and ceramic tiles.

The house is approached via its own private drive with automated stainless steel gates and video entry system which lead to an outer courtyard with triple garage and log store to the west close to the front door to the house. To the east, a 2 bedroom cottage is being created from the stone outbuilding. This has an open plan kitchen, living room and 2 bedrooms, both en suite with an area of 218.78 sq m (2355 sq ft), ideal accommodation for a housekeeping couple/gardener/groom/au pair etc. Alternatively the cottage could be let out or used for holiday letting. The cottage will have a separate double garage and workshop. Behind the west wing is a small detached annex with lounge, kitchenette, bedroom and shower room also eminently suitable for staff accommodation.

Bellisle stands in grounds of about 8.8 acres affording it ample protection and security. There are extensive lawns around the property itself with sizeable fields to the north and south, ideal for grazing horses and other livestock (About 6 acres grazing).

A remarkable project, there is little else to compare with Bellisle in Ayrshire. As the conversion and development works are reaching their final stages, there is a marvellous opportunity for purchasers to become involved now to tailor and adapt this special house to their own particular requirements.

Heating: at this stage there is flexibility. The conventional oil fired central heating boilers can, if required, be complemented by solar energy or ground source heat pump.
